In April, we began the search for an architectural and engineering team to design our three new elementary schools for Beacon Hill, Wallace, and the new school in Lexington. After interviewing three firms, Integrus Architectural of Seattle was selected.
To help design the best learning environments for our students, we’ve put together a team of people from each of the three school sites to form the Educational Specifications (Ed Spec) Team. Together with Integrus, the Ed Spec Team is meeting weekly through May and June to determine the must-haves (and must-not-haves) for the schools. The team toured recently-built elementary schools in the Portland/Vancouver area to gain valuable insight into how modern schools are built and organized.
